This year saw the return of Shaz to Fanime! Hooray! The Terrible Cult is reunited once again! Sadly, this may have also been our last Fanime, as two members seem to be over it, which bums me out to no end because I look forward to Memorial Day Weekend every year, and I know we’ll never get our act together for a regular meet up otherwise. Fanime gave us an excuse and a solid date for meeting up every year.
This was also the year that Fanime FINALLY got their act together re: registration, and there was ZERO LINE. Seriously. Last year and the year before we waited like 3 hours for our badges. It was obscene. I was dreading this year, and wondering how they would mess it up. This year was a breeze and I loved it. So thank you Fanime!
Onto the con!
My Comic-Con haul! (and I didn’t bust the credit card)
Normally not a fan of the giant bags, but c’mon… it’s Adventure Time!!
More after the jump…
This is the first year I cosplayed at SDCC. And a big group cosplay, too! We are cosplaying Adventure Time, with Princess Bubblegum, Lumpy Space Princess, Simon (descending into the madness of the Ice King), Marceline, and Fionna (with a handmade Cake). Peebs lost her crown TWICE somehow. LSP is 80s version (which was super fun). Simon was pretty popular. Everywhere we went, kids loved him and wanted their picture taken with him. And he wasn’t in his full blown Ice King form, but they still would yell, “ICE KING.”
I was also asked if my wig was my real hair, which was weird. I wish. That’d be some rad hair.
Anyway, jump for more cosplay at SDCC!
A series of the awesome displays companies put up for SDCC.
Hit the jump for more!
Ok, I’m almost current now! SDCC took place this year July 18-21 in its usual, overcrowded place. Through the magic of my friend’s computer-fu, he managed to get all of us tickets for my sixth year of attending. Six of us packed into Shaz’s house (MANY THANKS TO HER) and put up with us for five days. This was the most people I went with, although we didn’t all hang out together simultaneously, and would drift together and apart throughout the day. I went for all four days, and we STILL didn’t get to see everything we wanted, and BARELY made it through the dealer’s room, finally finishing it Sunday afternoon. We didn’t get to see a thing offsite, which is unfortunate, as there was a Hello Kitty event that I really wanted to go to. We lost a lot of time doing silly stuff like… eating lunch (horrors). Next year, if we can go, we’re bringing PB&J for at least part of the time.
This time I took enough pictures to split this event up into its old categories. First up: What I Watched (panels).
Uhhhh… so yeah, this blog’s been sorta comatose as life stuff happened and I just lost interest in posting anything. But I just got back from SDCC and I still have pics on my camera from Wondercon, Fanime, and AX, so I figured I’d post some stuff up from those. First up is Wondercon, held in Anaheim for the 2nd year in a row, from March 29-31.
Since vendors tend to go all out for SDCC, I thought I’d post some pics from some of the booths (both inside the Exhibit Hall and outside in surrounding areas). However, I don’t have a pic of the infamous Hobbit trolls since I there was a huge line and everyone wanted to pose with them. Eff that.
I also used to have a picture of the exhibit hall on preview night up there, but I took it down for copyright reasons. Instead there is a completely accurate and realistic drawing by me of what the exhibit hall looks like.
